DALLAS -- A Dallas County jury has
acquitted an 18-year-old on a murder charge in the July shooting death of a
16-year-old boy outside a Dallas apartment complex in the 3000 block of Grand
Defense attorney Robert Burns told jurors that
Kenneth Epperson shot Lynn Beck in self-defense.
Mr. Burns argued that Mr. Beck had escaped from
the Texas Youth Commission and had chased Mr. Epperson and two other people
around with a gun before he was shot in the head.
KeepAndBearArms.com Note: While
the anti-rights people who hate guns and their owners will cry over the poor
dead "child" who escaped from incarceration and attempted to kill this
young man -- adding his death to their tally of so-called "kids" who
were killed with guns, we say GOOD SHOT. If someone is trying to kill you, you
have a right to protect yourself, period. Where the assailant is 16 or 76 is
irrelevant when they have the means to do you bodily harm and the clear intent
to carry it out. Yes, it is sad that a young person had to die, but it's better
that the perpetrator be dead than the good guy, hands down.
